The Parkland College Graphic Design Poster Project

History
For years, Parkland College Professor Paul Young and I discussed the idea of having one of his Graphic Design III classes (GDS222) design posters for That's Rentertainment. They had to be cooler than what the studios were sending us, represent the feel of That's Rentertainment, and maybe not even deal with specific films -- maybe a few for local not-for-profits, environmental causes, social issues or maybe even be somewhat movie related. Of course, in 2009, the semester we finally decide to do it, Paul wasn't teaching. Luckily, John Havlik offered to have his class take on the assignment. Paul returned in 2010 and we did it again. Now it seems the project might be an annual assignment. Have a look at what the students at Parkland College have come up with so far...
